Congratulations to our 29 graduates of the Methuen Police Department Senior Citizens Police Academy!!
The goal of the Academy is to educate the seniors of our Community while giving them an understanding of how their Police Department works, as well as to show the complexity of a police officer’s job. It is our hope that any barriers that exist preventing open communications and understanding will begin to be removed through this Academy.
During the last five weeks, seniors learned the history of policing as well as the history of the Methuen Police Department. They also had classes on identity theft as well as ways to make themselves less likely to be a target. On graduation day, the graduates even got to meet our newest K9, Duke.
